A great way to perk up a rainy day

Tonight I experienced Winterlicious for the first time. I went to a little French restaurant a short distance up the street from my house called Matignon Restaurant for dinner tonight. It is very cosy little restaurant. The food was good but I would have been disappointed if I had been paying full menu prices. Their standard entree rates are about $30 – for that I want better than just good food. However, for a fixed price of $25 for 3 courses, I was very satisfied. Next year I need to get on the Winterlicious train a little earlier. There are some great restaurants that take part in Winterlicious and they have great dinners for great prices. Wow – something to actually look forward to in Jan-Feb.

  2. I risk prosecution and persecution but I must ask that if you do get on the Winter or Summer licious train in the future, you avoid any stations related to Oliver Bonacini (Canoe, Biff’s, Auberge). I went to one of their restos once upon a Winterlicious eve, and was laid low by an ailment so aggressive it involved two rounds of antibiotics and a couple of chats with public health. I’d rather take my chances with street meat from a deserted cart and unprotected shenanigans with a street hustler than eat at any of their establishments ever again.

  3. I will admit that the memory of your…um…incident did cross my mind as I headed out to the restaurant. Thankfully for me I had no such attack…phew!!
